Summer 2019 Aquatic Invasive Species Communication & Outreach Intern

APNEP is excited to announce that through the State of North Carolina Internship Program, we're now accepting applications for an Aquatic Invasive Species Communication & Outreach Intern! This paid, full-time internship is open to North Carolina residents studying at the undergraduate or graduate level. Applications will be accepted from now until January 14th, 2019.

Project Objective: The intern will work to develop key aspects of the outreach component of North Carolina’s Aquatic Nuisance Species Management Plan (ANSMP). The NC ANSMP is a collaborative, multiagency plan to improve the state’s ability to address aquatic invasive/nuisance species issues. This internship will involve working with Albemarle-Pamlico National Estuary Partnership staff and ANSMP committee members from government agencies, academic institutions, and nonprofits to begin development of an interagency plan for comprehensive public outreach, including education and communications goals. The intern will also focus on the development of a citizen science strategy to assist in early detection and prevention of the introduction and spread of aquatic invasive/nuisance species in the Albemarle-Pamlico region, utilizing examples of successful initiatives from outside North Carolina (Ex: PRISM, CISMA).

Major Tasks:  The intern will work with members of the multiagency ANSMP committee to obtain field work experience managing aquatic invasive species and assess existing outreach, communications, and education efforts addressing aquatic invasive species in the state. The intern will then utilize that experience to create a strategic plan for coordinated citizen science and public-private partnership initiatives to assist in early detection and prevention of aquatic invasive species in the Albemarle-Pamlico region.

Final Product or Outcome: An assessment of current outreach and communications efforts addressing aquatic invasive species in North Carolina, as well as a citizen science strategy for addressing aquatic invasive species in NC’s Albemarle-Pamlico region.

Occassional travel will be required - generally within the Albemarle-Pamlico region (eastern North Carolina) but travel may be statewide. The intern will work full-time (40 hours a week) for 10 weeks during the summer of 2019, at a wage of $8.25/hour.

Applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • An applicant must be a permanent North Carolina resident attending a college, university, law school, community college or technical institute in North Carolina or a North Carolina resident attending an equivalent institution out of state.
  • Applicants must carry a 2.5 or greater overall grade point average on a 4.0 scale.
  • Applicant must be at least 18 years old by January 1, 2019.
